The one of the scholarships offered through Tuoi Tre newspaper's program, established on November 20, 1988, to mobilize society to care for and create favorable conditions for deserving students. However, having a difficult family situation or facing a complex problem necessitates spiritual and material assistance so that new students, the future factors of the country, can continue to promote their abilities and talents in university and college lecture halls.
The program quickly spread due to the noble and humane gesture, forming a business in the provinces of Quang Nam, Da Nang, Tien Giang, Ben Tre, Quang Ngai, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien Hue.
The Quang Nam - Da Nang School was founded in 2005, bringing together entrepreneurs, journalists, teachers, and others who share the same aspiration for the land of Quang Nam - Da Nang. Their children's educational careers at home. In its 13 years, the organization has donated more than VND 7 billion; initially, each scholarship was only VND 3 million; now, it is VND 10 million, with exceptional cases receiving VND 15 million. Many of them have now graduated from university or graduate school. They have jobs, and many have become successful engineers, doctors, masters, and doctorates in their careers.
With noble intentions and good deeds, Tuoi Tre newspaper and Quang Nam - Da Nang school, Trungnam Group's Board of Directors decided to support VND 1 billion for the scholarship fund to motivate students to strive more in life and study during the program. These activities will be carried out over five years at VND 1.5 billion.
Trungnam Group participated in the Quang Nam School - Da Nang for the first time in 2017. The sharing of poor students moved the audience during the scholarship award ceremony held on July 7 at Palm Garden Resort (Hoi An). Truong Thi Thu Suong, a freshman at the Danang University of Economics, explains, "After learning that my father had an accident, I was transported to the hospital by my uncle, seeing my father very confused - now, the family's breadwinner is like that. Then, when my mother went to the hospital to care for my father and had an accident, I became even more depressed and desperate." Suong said in her story that she always told herself to be resilient and that she went to work so that she could share the work with her parents. Suong worked 15 hours a day after finishing her university exams to support her family. Suong reduced her overtime to 7 hours per day after starting school to devote more time studying.
Ms. Le Thi Thanh, the mother of a new student at the University of Danang's Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy, Le Thi Thu Hien, said that she had to collect bottles to earn VND 15,000 - 20,000 per day. Your mother's meal consists entirely of vegetables picked from the garden. Despite how difficult it was, she always wanted her children to work hard in school. "I don't have a father, but I think my mother is everything to me," Hien explained.
Mr. Nguyen Tam Tien - General Director of Trungnam Group, feeling sorry for the two children's circumstances, personally sponsored each child VND 200 million to transfer to the Quang Nam - Da Nang school to support their education.
On August 25, 2018, 142 scholarships were awarded to disadvantaged students who passed the university entrance exam at the 16th scholarship awarding ceremony for new students in the Quang Nam - Da Nang area.
Dung's father and brother died in an accident seven years ago, three years later, and then her mother. During the first ten years, the young student took the place of her mother and father to care for her younger brother, who had just started sixth grade. Despite being exhausted from her jobs, she never stopped studying. She admitted: "I consider myself unlucky because my father died in a car accident, my mother was terminally ill and had recently died, and I had to work hard to raise my younger brother. But, thankfully, Tuoi Tre Newspaper provided me with a scholarship; I don't know what else to say except thank you." We believe they will overcome and continue to write a beautiful story about their efforts.
In addition, Mr. Nguyen Tam Tien - General Director, presented ten scholarships worth VND 100 million to ten students who received scholarships for school in 2017 in the Quang Nam - Da Nang area and demonstrated outstanding achievement.
